Artist Residency - Call for Proposals

The Agosto Foundation / CIAPR Summer Artist-In-Residency Program invites proposals from individuals who wish to participate in a diverse interdisciplinary community of artists from multiple fields and scholarly pursuits, whose interest is to create challenging, new works. The residency offers the opportunity to engage with this community, to collaborate, perform, demonstrate, present, or speak about their work and ideas.

The residency is housed on a beautiful rustic farm property called Rocking Horse Hamlet, which is one hour from Prague, in the Czech Republic, and near to the town of Tábor.

Depending upon the technical requirements from accepted residents, the Artist-in-Residency Program aims to organize a public concert, either as an open house at Rocking Horse Hamlet or a performance in Tábor. There are also opportunities for guerrilla, or otherwise impromptu, performances to happen in the town, to share experience with the local community.

The application deadline is March 16, 2014. The residency is from July 20-Aug. 3, 2014. Up to 15 residents will be selected. All applications should be digital only.

Improvisation is, simply put, being and living this very moment. No one can hide in music, and improvising in music is to be truly in this very moment and being completely yourself, with all your qualities and faults. It is probably the most honest state for a human being to be in.
